's jobs report is, quote, a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. a standstill? we've had 32 straight months of private sector job growth. that's nearly 5 1/2 million jobs. president obama took us back from the brink of an economic catastrophe. that's leadership. that's a heck of a closing argument and what governor romney is offering doesn't even stand. joining me is krystaal ball and alicia menendez. krystal, will we look back and say that this is the week that decided this election? >> i think we will look back and say this is the week that he sealed the deal. if the president came into this week with a lead in the critical battleground states, he came in with a little bit of momentum, although things were relatively static. but i do think between the response to hurricane sandy, between the way that governor christie embraced him this week, mayor bloomberg's endorsement, the magazine endorsement and then the jobs number today i think sealed the deal. i think it's the critical piece. as we respond as a country to a natural disaster to a crisis situation, we reali
? >> polls show americans care more about the economy and jobs. polls show voters think romney can fix the economy and create jobs. but the media aren't connecting the dots. why not? find out next on news watch. [ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serus allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of hear
by the fight over the economy. it's what ultimately can tip tha scales. we have seen now an argument from the president that is about trust. and this somehow he lays it out against governor romney. >> there's no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust. trust matters.s. you know, you want to know that the person who is applying to be your president and commander-in-chief is trustworthy. that he means what he says. that he's not just making stuff up. depending on whether it's convenient or not. >> how is he using that argumena to advance the cause of hey, you can't trust what you're going 0 get, that's going to ultimately lead to economic recovery under the republicans? >> i think that the president, as the race gets narrower, we focus on smaller places and smaller numbers of voters. we see that become a resonant argument. we're talking about the economy in the midwest, we're talking about the economy in ohio. on the integrity issue, the trust issue, mitt romney this th week went to defiance, ohio, an told a group of 11,000 people, jeep is about to move all of their product
's going to be dominated by the economy. it can tip the scales. we have seen an argument from the president that is about trust. this is how he lays it out against governor romney. >> there's no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust. trust matters. you know, you want to know that the person who is applying to be your president and commander and chief is trustworthy. that he means what he says. that he's not just making stuff up depending on whether it's convenient or not. >> how is he using that argument to advance that cause? you cannot trust what you are going to get to lead to economic recovery? >> i think the president is -- as the race gets narrower and narrower, we focus on smaller and smaller places and voters. it's a very resonant argument. we are talking the economy in the midwest, in ohio. on the integrity issue, the trust issue, romney went to defiance, ohio and told a group of 11,000 people jeep is about to move all of their production overseas. i read that somewhere. not at all true. it's okay to make a flub, but not to correct it. they asked are you sure he
we study. in a free market economy, recessions and recoveries, upswings and down swings are part and parcel of the world we live in. when you look at how budgets are proposed, off of the congressional budget office projection. they are not that realistic. in 2014, 2015, 2016, they are projected real gdp growth of 4.4%. sounds pretty good. how realistic is it? if you take a look at reality, what's happened since the beginning of the century? gdp has grown at 1.7% and we know we are in a pretty sluggish economy. there is a huge disconnect between what's proposed and what's going on outside this window? >> that's the big deal. the claim is, i'm going to go in and cut taxes. don't worry, cutting taxes is going to be stimulative. we are going to end up with way more jobs and there will be fewer taxes from each individual. there will be way more people paying into the tax system. revenue neutral. lakshman is telling us you have a choice over how much you charge people in taxes. they may not produce all the jobs. what he is doing on day one is adding to the deficit. >> could be but let'
%. that's a 12-point swing. the question of whether or not this economy has turned the corner is no longer a question. it's turned the corner thanks mostly to the work of president obama. >> professor, romney today tried to provide a vision of what he'd like to do as president. let's take a listen to mr. romney. >> i know that when i'm elected the economy and the american job market will still be stagnant, but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. i won't spend my effort trying to pass partisan legislation that's unrelated to economic growth. gee said he won't spend his time complain being his predecessor. in fact, he'll take credit for the economic recovery that's under way as he took credit for the success of the education in massachusetts even though he was only governor for four years. >> clearly the economy is not stagna stagnant. there are a lot of different statistical data that suggests the economy is slowly but steadily recovering, and it's real interesting for mr. romney to sort of suggest he's not going to play social conservative politics when he's been playi
>> what did you learn? >> the economy is improving. i learned parade has 88 million subscribers and i listened to eric smith on the way in. >> thanks to you all and for the morning joe team great work this week as every week. you guys ar maizing. thank you so much. all right. it's way too early. mark halperin, what time is it? >> stay tuned for "chuck today and the daily rundown." >>> a better than expected jobs report just days before the country decides who will be the next president. 171,000 jobs added in the month of october and revised reports add another 84,000. the initial reaction is positive. does it move any votes? 88 hours in ohio. that is what the next few days will feel like. president obama and governor romney are in the buckeye state as if the whole race may depend on it. guess what? it probably does. we'll go live to the site of the president's event this morning near columbus. there are more than just two guys running for office. house republicans could actually pick up a few seats on tuesday. we'll talk to the gop's man in charge of holding on to the house and
rights. that is one base of coordination but also the economy because women of color were the hardest hit during this recession. and we need to reach out to color in terms of latinos in particular, also immigration. so in terms of reaching the women, getting the women's vote, it's not just about the ovaries. it's about immigration, it's about civil rights, it's about the economy, it's about all of these different issues and bundling it to the. you can't win on one issue alone. >> i feel like we could show you political science data saying women tend to do better when a democrat is in office on all of these things. are the democrats making the argument they need to make to these broad group of women? >> republicans had a very specific strategy this year which is try to force white voters, including married white women, to really choose more than ethnicity and more their class and not pay attention to issues that would be considered women's issues. but what i think is interesting is how few republican women have been out front. you showed all those clips. very few republican women, includin
as coming in with the latest report. so it does suggest this economy is gaining steam and that has lifted the president just a few points but that makes all the difference in this cycle. >> perry, your latest article is titled i want to be able to say this on tv, it's the obama care, stupid. why election 2012 is about health care, not the economy. but explain to me what you mean. >> what i mean is we've talked a lot about the economy. bill clinton has, president obama has, mitt romney has in reality the president has very limited control over how the economy works and whether jobs are created or not. this is something out of the president's control. mitt romney says he'll create 12 million jobs. but a lot of analysts say 12 million jobs are created whether it's mitt romney, president obama or alex witt as the president. not clear the president has that much power over the economy. on health care the president has a lot of power in terms of what he can do. mitt romney wants to repeal health care which will be a big change. president obama wants to implement the health care bill which reall
is the state of the economy and we're slow in recovering. in iowa things are pretty good. 5.2% unemployment rate, so i'm wonderi wondering, are people in iowa feeling more like unemployment is at 5% or more like unemployment is at 7.8%? >> i think that depends on who you ask and when you and. if you talk about -- it's interesting to watch republicans, for example, in charge of the state, republican governor, for example. simultaneously touting the fact that the economy is on the move under his administration, and yet, you know, making the point that nationally the economy is still in bad shape. i think that iowa voters have been pretty clear that they feel better about the way things are going until the state than about the nation. you know, obviously, we're all paying attention to the national news, you know, here today in iowa. everyone is hanging on the news about hurricane sandy and what's happening to our friends on the east coast. so, you know, people do pay attention to the national and not just what's going on in their own neighborhood. >> what jumped out at me about this endorsemen
any attempt to stimulate the economy or pass legislation to help create jobs in this country. they openly brag about that, you know, their plan is to make president obama a one-term president. they kill compromise deals, brokered between democrats and republicans. this is the party mitt romney will lead if he's president. he won't reach across the aisle. he'll turn his back on the folks on the other side of the aisle. and it will be more of the same. mitt romney has no plan for taxes. he can't be direct on that. he has no plan when it comes to repealing obama care and what he's going to replace it with. and what about immigration? which in these last few weeks hasn't gotten a whole lot of attention. he has no plan for america. and now he's going to be the guy who's going to reach across the aisle? get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question. who do you trust to work with the other side? text "a" for president obama, text "b" to mitt romney to 622639. always to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. joining m
and that is to turn america's economy around. it is turning around and denying it doesn't make it so. >> jimy williams and krystal ball, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> stay with us. much more ahead. >> there are no democrats and no republicans during a storm. there are just fellow americans. so uh this is my friend frank and his, uh, retirement plan. one golden crown. come on frank how long have we known each other? and that is to turn america's there are just fellow americans. . and that is to turn america's there are just fellow americans. . you realize the odds of winning are the same as being mauled by a polar bear and a regular bear in the same day? frank! oh wow, you didn't win? i wanna show you something... it's my shocked face. [ gasps ] ♪ [ male announcer ] get a retirement plan that works at e-trade. >>> five days to go before voters hirt the polls and we're about to be carpet bombed with a sustained blitz of political advertising. nbc news reports the total ad spending in the presidential race is about to hit $1 billion, and in this week alone both campaigns plus all the outside inte
to the economy is sort of a muddle. that the way he loses is if the unemployment rate remains high, jobs -- the jobs are not -- are 75,000, 80,000 jobs created no talking point where he can say it's not where we want it to be but i think it's getting better, so i think a muddle -- it's sort of the tie goes to the incumbent. in baseball, be it's muddled enough it winds up not helping mitt romney which means it helps barack obama a little bit. >> let me ask you, charlie, just switching gears for a second, unless you disagree with chris cizilla, i wanted to ask you about the house and the senate. because if president obama were to win then perhaps he could pull a couple of those close senate races in, the house we pretty much all agree is going to stay republican, but one of the things we've been looking at more closely is that this is going to be a more partisan and less experienced house of representatives. >> exactly. our model this morning had democrats picking up three or four seats total and they need 25. you're absolutely right, that the people that are leaving congress, whether they
/48. that looks like a ballot test as much as anything else. and finally, if this election is about the economy, we need to put up our last poll numbers, again, we have the president leading in new hampshire but i look at his job approval lead and i look at this question, romney ahead of obama on the economy in new hampshire. dead even in iowa and wisconsin. and that's a state that could break -- that of the three that we have today, most likely to break to romney. >> and that's the one that's been trending on the economy romney's way. that has flipped. obama was better on the economy and now it's romney. look, both camps know that new hampshire is is going to get a lot of visitors very soon. >> that's for sure. we've got three more coming over the next four days. i know you're busy in the poll and trying to do our best to make up and do this in the midst of sandy. thank you, sir. >> yeah, my pleasure, chuck. be well. >> all right. turning back now to the destruction that is brought by sandy. the well known city of seaside heights, these pictures have become iconic instead of what used to be ik
the unemployment numbers saying the increase in the unemployment rate is a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual stand still. but when we look at the jobs that have been added over the last six months, we see the steady rise, going in the right direction. unemployment dropping to under 8%, staying there. does that take out the economic message of mitt romney at the kneecaps? >> not really. one, we're not seeing the type of job growth that we need to be coming back. that number has to be way over 200,000 per month. but what it's -- and the other thing is, when you dig down into those nebs, you look at the income numbers. people are not feeling it. their incomes are not rising. so when you look at this from a political point of view, it's what people feel. what's their emotional pocketbook reaction? and the fact is right now people are still hurting. so, again, both candidates are going to spin everything. i think it's already baked in. i don't think it's going to affect it much. if it went over 8%, it could have. but at the end of the day, i think that their messages, what they're
we can try to get crowds there to help out the economy. the number two economy income chris christie said is tourism in new jersey. that's how important it is to the state there. and the pictures, just up and down the coast, don't want to forget about our flepds in connecticut and all of long island. and even as we've seen the out he boroughs. i just posted a picture on my twitter feed of coney island, brooke lin. i can get there in five minutes from my house and the picture i just put on my dwiter account is crazy showing how deep the water was at the peak of storm surge. now that we're getting the assessments coming in and you can see the damage, early estimates are up at $50 billion that this will cost. and this would put it up there with all the all-time most expensive hurricanes in our country. this does take into account inflation, too. so that's why andrew is one of the costliest storms in our country's history at $46 billion. of course this will be about half of katrina's damage. and of course we know what katrina today and especially the new orleans area. so this is rare ter
. this is a swing constituency like in ohio. they're disappointed in obama on the economy and don't like where the republican party is on social issues. they've been bouncing back and forth between, you know, when they're focusing on the economy, they're voting for romney, when they're focusing more on the social issues they're voting for obama. i look at a constituency like that and think of an event like this, this is just major sort of natural disaster and you have bipartisan, cross partisan voices who are praising the president's leadership in this case and i almost could see that maybe would break the tie. >> yeah. >> right. bill clinton out there campaigning for obama, it can be effective but people expect bill clinton to be campaigning for obama. when it's chris christie suddenly the guy who's the keynote speaker at the republican convention speaking up and vouching for him, that's the kind of thing, people who are wavering back and forth, that registers with them to some extent. >> how are you hanging in personally dealing with the storm? >> i have it a lot better than most people. i u
the economy more than a few times before they're grown. but it's for them, so i've found a way. who matters most to you says the most about you. massmutual is owned by our policyholders so they matter most to us. massmutual. we'll help you get there. >>> a flurry of new polling from the swing states today. all these polls are just released today. in colorado president obama up by four. in iowa, president obama up by four. in wisconsin president obama up by seven points. in new hampshire the president leading in six points. in ohio president obama leading in three points. in virginia president obama leading by one point. in florida president obama leading by two points. one state that's not a swing state this year but that president obama made into a swing state in 2008 is the great state of indiana. indiana flipped from red to blue in the presidential contest. president obama is not necessarily expected to pull off the same thing this year in indiana. but this year there's a really hot race in indiana in the senate. after a tea party primary cost senator richard lugar his senate job, the re
on the banks that crashed our economy. medicare voucherized. >> president obama also talking about avoiding the fiscal cliff which would trigger tax hikes and spending cuts two short months from now. he says he wants to work with congressional republicans on it. >> i've said to folks, i'll go to capitol hill. i'll wash john boehner's car. i'll walk mitch mcconnell's dog. i'll do whatever is required to get this done. >> president obama heads to new hampshire a bit later today for a stop in nashua. vice president biden is scheduled to hold an event in lynch burg, virginia. >>> now we go to ohio where nbc's ron mott is on that bus tour with paul ryan. hello to you ron again. where are you in the many stops on that bus tour today? >> reporter: hey there, alex. i've got to get my back stretched out. we've got five stops as you mentioned here today. three more tomorrow. eight in total. 400 plus miles over the next two days with paul ryan. right now we're in janesville, ohio. just wrapping up a speech here. a lot of people are wondering why so much attention on ohio? this state may be the one tha
the economy his number one campaign priority, and rightly so. this marks the very first time the paper has endorsed a republican since richard nixon. that was in 1972. joining me now is rick green of "the des moines register." it's great to have you with me. your paper did endorse mitt romney over the weekend. as i read from your blog and other reasons why that happened, you said the transparency was key to that selection. romney recently appeared in ohio claiming that jeep was moving production to china and has doubled-down with a new ad. i want to show everybody what that new ad looks like. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians building jeeps in china. >> chrysler issued a statement last week saying jeep has intention of shifting production of jeep models out of the north america to china. this president said this election is about trust. we have chrysler saying that romney was flat-out wrong, but he's still pushing this issue. do you believe that governor romney for the readers of "the register" is the candidate that should be trusted? >> it's great
